This morning on Tuesday’s edition of the ABC gabfest The View, GH star Ryan Paevey (Nathan) joined the ladies of the panel as a special guest co-host.  Ryan joined Rosie Perez, Whoopi Goldberg, Nicolle Wallace, and another guest co-host Glee’s Naya Rivera for the hour.

In one segment, Whoopi discussed that over this past weekend, 50 Shades of Grey opened nationwide and garnered over 94 million dollars at the box-office.  She then launched into how guest co-host Ryan Paevey actually auditioned for the role of Christian Grey that ultimately went to actor Jamie Dornan.

In a fun moment, Ryan takes the ladies through his “50 Shades” audition process, and why he thinks he was not selected for the role!  Later, Naya Rivera chimes in that she took to Twitter to find about what people thought of Dornan in the lead role, and said that women were expecting someone taller and with more muscles, and more manly, hence Paevey!

Watch the segment after the jump!  How do you think Ryan fared on The View?  Do you think he would have made the perfect Christian Grey?  Comment below!

Didn’t watch the View or the clip. When is ABC going to realize the only way to get the soap fans back is by restoring AMC & OLTL? Bring back Love In The Afternoon!!! And ABC7NY stop interrupting GH for “Breaking News” especially when it involves 3 idiots!

Agree 100% with your part 2. You’d think that given the 500 hours of local news that they air each day, they’d save minor items for then and quit interrupting GH, one of the few programs that I enjoy and love to escape with. And it’s laughable how everything, such as a water main break or a road closure, is labeled “Breaking News”.

But sorry Linda, ABC will never bring back AMC and OLTL. That ship has long sailed and they clearly have no regrets, now 4 years later. At this point in time, you and others truly need to move on already. I know how you feel. I was definitely sad and disappointed that they were cancelled too and still miss them, but I’ve turned the page. So have all of the actors and crew members on both shows by now. Let’s just focus on GH, which is doing quite well and is better now than it’s been in years.

I have not watched anything on the alphabet network since the last day OLTL aired. The only reason I looked at this post was to learn who Ryan Paevey is.

You are so right. The only way to resort their viewership is to bring back AMC and OLTL.

Christie, in a very eloquent way, spoke the truth. However, by protesting and not watching GH we run the risk of losing that as well.

Folks, AMC & OLTL are NEVER coming back to ABC. Please understand that. For starters, do you realize how much it would cost ABC to even buy back the rights to the shows from Prospect Park? Not to mention rebuild sets and rehire actors, writers, etc without any promise that the shows would draw enough viewership to be profitable again? Also, where exactly would ABC place them in their daily lineup now? It’s NOT happening. Quite frankly, it’s very sad and downright pathetic that there are some soap fans that STILL can’t move on from this already.

I do not watch ABC either. I would only watch if AMC came back. I just want ABC to go away forever. I support the soaps by watching Y&R. No I will not get over it.

That’s why I miss Soapnet – no interruptions for manufactured “Bulletins” :/

I was a loyal AMC/OLTL fan. I grieved both shows, but especially OLTL. It was. Great show with a strong audience; there was no reason to cancel. That said, I do not boycott ABC. GH is strong show, and my watching helps it to stay relevant.

ABC will never bring back these shows, so it’s time to move forward. Support the shows we do have left on daytime, and watch Ryan Peavey on The View. It can only help!

Please people for your own sanity MOVE ON ALREADY. It’s been YEARS since your soaps went off. If a boyfriend left you and you were still waiting for him to come running back to you 2 YEARS LATER, you would have to admit that that was a psychological problem. If they cancelled Two Broke Girls, would you stop watching ALL of CBS?

Totally serious: you people have a big problem.

They invite the man onto the show, let him talk! They also did not let Naya Rivera speak either. Rude.

TOTALLY AGREE.

Within 15 seconds of watching this clip I was reminded how awful this show is.

(Barbara Walters will pay in the afterlife for this.)

They yenta it up on all these shows. It is annoying for any guest to say anything without someone cutting them off. Have ALL the women yack it up and give their VIEW and then when a guest comes on only have one or two women in the segment.

I have not read nor seen 50 Shades of Gray,, doing so might ruin my sex life and I’d start to shop at Madards….
nonetheless! I could see Ryan as Christian just because he is sexy hot!

ever notice- 50 shades of grey sounds like a home decorating book .. LOL !!

Lol, Su…..don’t need any instructions…my bedroom sizzles, as it is!!
Seriously, though, I cannot understand what the big hype is all about. I get more thrills watching my soaps or watching my daughter take her first steps. Those who make such a ruckus, really need to get a life. JMO.

Jamie Dornan/Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson/ Anastasia Steele, neither are models and both are much like ordinary looking people..
Both of them being just nice looking was great casting because people could relate to Christian and Anastasia..
Ryan was way too gorgeous, his model sexy body was to hot to be Christian..
The casting of more-so regular people is what made the movie more excitingly believable..

CeeCee
CeeCee

Right on, Su. There is nothing remarkable about those actors/actresses. Dakota, unfortunately fell far, far from the apple tree which is her mother, the gorgeous Melanie.

Saw the show. They completely ignored him as they babbled, cackled and shrieked their way through hot topics. They then talked about fashion week and how skinny models are, completely oblivious to the fact Ryan is a model…not even bringing him into that conversation. Whoopie then went on to describe wrongly how Ryan as Det West caught the bomb on the Haunted Star….and then interrupted his answer regarding his fifty shades audition…sigh….with it all the words he did manage to get in were articulate and intelligent. He came off charming, adorable and non pretentious…love!

Rebecca…YEAH, REALLY!!!!! A-L-L 3 of them (ESPECIALLY Whoopi!!!!!) are nothing but annoying, yammering and even more clueless AIRHEADS!!!!! As far as I’m concerned, Ryan brought some MUCH-NEEDED C-L-A-S-S to The View!!!!!! RYAN ROCKS!!!!!!

Take care, Rebecca. Peace.

Not even a GH star can make me turn on The View anymore. The View has run it’s course and needs to be put out of its misery ASAP already, imo. It’s amazing to think that right now, GH seems relatively safe for the forseeable future while The View is on the chopping block. Who would have thought that 3-4 years ago?

I hate labeling myself as a turncoat, but I’m a turncoat. It took many opinions from many different posters to open my eyes.
I loved THE VIEW as it was….as my Gran saw it back in the day…and myself. The panel is not stupid…just obnoxiously oh- listen-to-me-listen-to-me….what-I-have-to-say-is-so-much-more-important!!
I am sort of changing my tune….which is so unlike me. I usually am steadfast and stick to my guns. But, I must agree with all you, my soap friends, …..I was completely disappointed. I just watched the segment—-FASHION WEEK was absolutely astounding, by the by—- I felt so badly for Ryan….it was such an awkward hour. I can’t put my finger on it. He was so polite….so much so that he was either interrupted or posed condescending questions. But, as the gentleman that he is, he just kept stepping back.
Naya was treated in just about the same manner…..such a classy and beautiful girl.
I still maintain a weakness for Whoopi, I really like her and Rosie P. But, the Wallace woman strikes me as spacey…has anyone noticed she speaks with a constant smile on her face? Ugh.
I am heartbroken about the deterioration of this show….I want it to thrive, with the right panelists. I will not give up. ….if only Joy would come back!

Unfortunately, CeeCee THE ABOVE is what the world is coming to. Just think about all those cell phone commercials that air during primetime. The actors are all portrayed as egocentric.

I nearly lost my breakfast recently when I saw a commercial for Eggo waffles where the idiot family was bragging about WHO would post a picture of their nobody-gives-a-rat’s-ass waffle on Twitter or Instagram. Really? Is this what has become of us? The media and advertising take absolutely ZERO responsibility for the way they push this me-me-me crap at the general public.

I tell you as a mom of a two preschool-aged boys, it is extremely difficult to raise DECENT children in today’s world.

I am fortunate that I was raised in the 70s in a small town in upstate New York (read the country). I had wonderful examples with my parents and my maternal grandparents (dairy farmers) and we did not have cell phones and the internet. We got along just fine with our little country party line for our corded phones. When your show was on you watched it or you missed it until the VCR came along. People actually talked to each other when seated across from one another and people were actually interested in what others had to say.

Small town life taught me to hold the door for other people. Having a job in retail during high school taught me to pick things up the floor in stores (even though I wasn’t the one who dropped them). My parents taught me to treat others as I would like to be treated as did my parochial schooling. My grandma taught me the joy of baking for others “just because.” Not because I needed a pat on the back or I needed something to brag about on Facebook.

I like your comments, CeeCee. You sound like someone who listens to what others say before you respond and you try to look at the other side of the story. On the internet that is a rare quality these days. 🙂

Does the fact that he went on an audition give him credibility as an actor? I think a more interesting aspect of that story would be to find out what the casting director thought. I’m pretty sure I know the answer.

Not a fan of Nathan West but I give the guy credit for admitting he auditioned for 50.

Oh Yeah.. he would have made a great Christian! Love Whoopies comment about the grandson.. I can relate, but he’s still hot!

Ryan could read the phone book. He is so sexy.

Yeah, Jake. That’s probably the reason he didn’t get the role; his beauty would have sent all the women and men into lovesick hysteria. LOL.

He did a great job and I think a huge star in the making. The camera loved him yesterday.

For those not watching ABC because of AMC and OLTL, that is your choice. But, you are damaging GH with that mentality. The actors from both shows have moved on. The networks are not going to pull a show from the archives when they can spend a fraction on a talk show, game show, local news, etc.

A completely pointless appearance, but he did look cute. He also did slightly better than Jason Thompson’s appearance last year.

GH’s Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford Deliver The Power Performance of The Week!

A grieving mother and sister found themselves stuck in a revenge plot gone haywire, that provided the backdrop in which two accomplished actresses; Kathleen Gati (Liesl) and Michelle Stafford (Nina) were able to shine on episodes of General Hospital.

Although Peter’s kidnapping went on far too long, and fans on social media have their own viewpoints as to what they think of Mr. August aka Henrik Faison (Wes Ramsey), the final week of taking Peter hostage to torment him as payback for his part in Nathan’s death; gave Gati and Stafford scenes from the comedic, to the emotional, to the cray-cray, and more..

Courtesy/ABC

On Thursday’s episode, Nina is trying to talk down Liesl from torching the place, but Liesl is becoming more unhinged and more grief-stricken.  She says to Nina, “I lost my son.  I gave Nathan up to protect him.  I spent my life not even daring to gaze in his direction for fear that Cesar would take him.  I never wanted my son to be like him, and now my beautiful boy is buried in the ground, while the other son is still breathing!  So, I must finish this my way, Nina  …  with or without you!”

Pleading, an emotional Nina responds: “Aunt Liesl, you are not the only one who lost time with Nathan.  I did, too.  I missed him growing up.  I missed his childhood, and seeing the incredible man he turned into.  I feel his absence and I feel the loss every second of every day.  I hate Faison, and I will for the rest of my life, and I hate Anna (Finola Hughes) just like you did, but that does not justify what I have done… being an accomplice in this crazy revenge.  None of that is going to bring my brother back.”   Nina goes on to say:  “I knew J would not want his mother grieving alone. This isn’t grief anymore … this is madness.”

Obrecht with rage and sadness in her eyes says, “The brightest souls like my Nathan are extinguished.”  And from there, as viewers know by now, Liesl sets the fire, which sets the stage for Nina’s rescue, and the Friday cliffhanger of Finn (Michael Easton) having to decide whether to go in the burning building and get Peter out, or not.

Later on the pier, a stoic, but grief-stricken Liesl is arrested.  She spitefully tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), “Tell Anna something for me: ‘Now we are even!”‘

Earlier in the week, we saw how Kathleen Gati navigated the comedic yet dramatic moments as she had to knock Franco (Roger Howarth) out, while she was trying to get back to Spoon Island, as he realized Obrecht was the guilty party who took Peter.

Gati has made Obrecht, this one-of-a-kind character, come to life, no matter what the circumstances the writers put her in.  And as for Michelle Stafford, when Nina spoke of her brother and the loss she continues to feel, it was one of the most on-the-money moments for anyone who has lost a sibling that they looked to.

So, even through some of the absurdity of the circumstances, and as they were portraying two women trying to figure their way out of the mess they created,  Gati and Stafford never faltered as they committed to the material, and delivered this week’s Power Performance of the Week.

Does GH’s Margaux Have A Connection To Someone In Port Charles? If So, Who?

This week, General Hospital viewers saw that the ABC daytime drama series is teasing a potential pairing of Drew (Billy Miller) and the new district attorney in town, Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), after the two characters run into each other at a concession stand at the cancelled baseball game.

As fans of the soap genre know, Miller and Hendrickson also played former love interests on The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott and Chloe Mitchell.

During Hendrickson’s first #AskGH live Twitter Q&A when asked: “Is your character connected to someone on the show?”  Elizabeth responded: “As of now Margaux is new to town … but you never know, there may be some connection that has not be revealed yet :)”

That tweet has left fans speculating if perhaps Margaux, has an ex in Port Charles, is tied to a major family in someway, or perhaps has some legal trouble past?

Recently on GH. when Chase (Josh Swickard) arrived on the scene as the new cop (following Nathan’s (Ryan Paevey) untimely death), it was later revealed that he was actually the half-brother to Finn (Michael Easton).  And as we know in the soaps, connections are usually the key to more long term success in a role, rather than being just a standalone character, but there have been exceptions.

So, who would you like to see Margaux have a connection to on GH?  What do you think will happen with her character? Comment below.
